We will refer to such a dependence as an affine dependence.
1989] show that factors other than accuracy of alias analysis for affine dependences hold the key to improving automatic parallelization.
In practice, most affine dependences fall into the part of the domain for which both approaches can quickly and accurately determine whether or not a dependence exists (see Pugh [1992] for details).
